Yokohama will unveil 3 OTR tires at MINExpo
Yokohama Tire Corp. is debuting three OTR radial tires at the 2012 MINExpo International trade show in Las Vegas, Nev.
The tires -- RL45, RB42 (pictured) and RL51 -- will be displayed at Yokohama booth No. 8271 at the show, which runs Sept. 24-26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“MINExpo only comes around every four years and is the largest mining show in the world,” says Gary Nash, Yokohama's vice president of OTR sales. “It attracts about 50,000 attendees and is absolutely the best place to launch our new OTR tires.”
1. RB42. Designed for: dump trucks and soft and/or loose surfaces such as mud, sand, gravel and rocks. Features: an extra-deep tread for improved traction and tread life; large center blocks that increase resistance to cuts and improve overall wear; and a zig-zag groove pattern for better traction. Sizes: 18.00R33, 24.00R35, 27.00R49 (with cut protected compound) and 27.00R49 (with regular compound).
2. RL45. Designed for: articulated dump trucks, loaders and underground vehicles. Features: a deep tread that offers longer wear while adding stability; a non-directional block pattern that provides abrasion and cut resistance; side-cut protection; "excellent" traction; and improved ride comfort. Sizes: 26.5R25 E2 and 26.5R25 L1.
3. RL51 (grader). Designed for: mining and construction. Features: side-cut protection, "outstanding" traction and a long tread life. Size: 23.5R25.
